FEATURES
Audio/Video Jack Panel allows direct connections with VCRs, DVDs, or
other devices, providing quality TV picture and sound playback.
Audio Volume Leveler (AVL) Control keeps the TV sound at an even
level. Peaks and valleys that occur during program changes or commercial
breaks are reduced, making for a more consistent, comfortable sound.
AutoChronª automatically sets the right time of day and maintains it
with digital precision through brownouts, power failures, and even
Daylight Savings Time adjustments.
AutoLockª allows you to block the viewing of certain channels or programs with certain ratings if you do not want your children to view inappropriate materials.
Auto Programming scans (when activated) for all available channels
from regular antenna or cable signals and stores only active broadcast stations in the TVÕs memory.
AutoPictureª allows you to change the picture settings (color, tint, contrast, etc.) for various types of programming, such as sports, movies, multimedia (games), or weak signals with the push of one button.
AutoSoundª allows you to select from three factory-set controls and a
personal control that you set according to your own preferences through
the onscreen Sound menu. The three factory-set controls (Voice, Music,
and Theatre) enable you to tailor the TV sound so as to enhance the particular programming you are watching.
Channel Edit allows you to add or delete channels from the list stored in
the TVÕs memory. Channel Edit makes it easy to limit or expand the number of channels that are available to you when you press the Channel (+) or
(Ð) buttons on your remote control.
Closed Captioning allows the viewer to read TV program dialogue or
voice conversations as onscreen text.
ImageMaxª helps you sharpen the picture quality by making dark portions of the picture darker and light portions brighter.
Infrared Remote Control works your TV and other remote-controlled
devices, such as VCRs, DVD players, cable converters, and satellite
receivers.
Infrared Remote (IR) Blaster works with the M-Link feature to enable
your TV to ÒlearnÓ the remote-control commands of new Philips devices
or multibrand devices that you have connected to your TV. After the commands are learned, you can use your TV remote control to operate and
control all of the devices.
M-Linkª allows you to convert your TV into a home-cinema control
center composed of up to six devices (including an audio amplifier). You
activate the devices by pressing macro buttons and control the devices by
pressing ÒhotÓ buttons on your remote control. Choose from cable box,
digital set top box, DVD (digital video disc), laser disc (LD), satellite digital TV, VCD (video compact disc), and VCR (video cassette recorder)
devices.
Onscreen Menu shows helpful messages and instructions for setting TV
feature controls (can be viewed in English, French, or Spanish).
Sleep Timer automatically turns the TV OFF after a set amount of time
that you choose.
Standard Broadcast (VHF/UHF) or Cable TV (CATV) channel capability allows for viewing by antenna or cable.
Stereo capability, including a built-in audio amplifier and twin-speaker
system, allows for the reception of TV programs broadcast in stereo sound.
Surf Button allows you to easily switch among only the channels that are
of interest to you (the ones that you have programmed into the TVÕs Surf
control through the onscreen menu).
Timer allows you to set your TV to turn itself ON and OFF once or daily
like an alarm clock.

SMART
HELP
BEGIN
A typical ANT(enna)
A and PIP ANT B connection
(using a common signal source
and an optional Signal Splitter):
If your Antenna or Cable TV
signal has a round cable connector (75 ohm) on the end,
then you're ready to connect it
to the 75ohm Signal Splitter.
If your antenna has flat twinlead wire (300 ohm), you first
need to attach the antenna wires
to the screws on a 300 to 75
ohm adapter before connecting
to the 75ohm Signal Splitter.
Connect your Antenna or
Cable TV signal to the single
75 ohm input plug on the twoway Signal Splitter (optional).
Then connect two lengths of RF
Coaxial Cable to the two Output
plugs on the two-way Signal
Splitter (F-type connector on
both ends).
Connect the twin Output
plugs on the Signal Splitter to
the ANT A and PIP ANT B
inputs on the rear of the TV.
Push the round connector end of
the RF Coaxial Cable onto the
ANT(enna) plug and screw it
down tight (if using threaded
cables).
Remember,
be sure to set the
TV for the type signal you've connected (see "TUNER"
section on page 3 of
this Guide.)
Your TV can set
itself to select only
the channel numbers
on your Cable system (see “Auto
Program" page 3). If
you use a Cable
Converter box, set
the TV to the same
channel as the converter's CH 3/4
switch (on the rear of
the converter.)

UNDERSTANDING AUTOLOCK™
he AutoLock™ feature receives
T
and processes data sent by
broadcasters or other program
providers that contain program content advisories. When programmed
by the viewer, a TV with AutoLock™
can respond to the content advisories
and block program content that may
be found objectionable (such as
offensive language, violence, sexual
situations, etc.). This is a great feature to censor the type of programming children may watch.
In the AutoLock™ section, you’ll
learn how to block channels and programming that is not rated, is unrated, or has no rating. You will also
find out how to turn these blocking
features ON or OFF. Following are
brief explanations of some terms and
ratings related to the AutoLock™
feature.
AutoLock™ offers various
Blocking Options from which to
choose:
BLOCKING: The BLOCKING control is what can be thought of as the
Òmaster switchÓ for AutoLockª.
This control affects the settings you
have chosen for blocking programs
according to movie ratings or TV
ratings, or for blocking programs
that have no rating or are unrated.
When the BLOCKING control is
OFF, the blocking or censoring of
programs is disabled. When the
BLOCKING control is ON, blocking
will occur according to the settings
you have chosen.
BLOCK UNRATED: ALL unrated
programs will be blocked if this feature is set to ON.
UNRATED programming is encoded
with information from the MPAA
(Motion Picture Association of
America) or TV broadcasters, but it
does not have a specific rating. In
other words, the MPAA or the TV
broadcasters have chosen not to
assign a rating to the programming.
NO RATING: ALL programming
with no content advisory data can be
blocked if NO RATING is set to
ON.
Programming that has No Rating is
not encoded with any rating information from the MPAA or the
Parental Guidelines. Any programming could fall into this category.

Cleaning and Care
CAUTION: A video source (such as a video game, compact disc interactive [CDI], or
TV information channel) that shows a constant nonmoving pattern on the TV screen can
cause picture tube damage. When your TV is continuously used with such a source, the
pattern of the nonmoving portion of the game (or other source) can leave a permanent
image on the picture tube. When youÕre not using the video source, turn it OFF. Also,
regularly alternate the use of such video sources with normal TV viewing.
• Check the TV power cord. Unplug the TV, wait 10 seconds, then reinsert the plug into
the outlet and push the POWER button again.
• Check that the outlet is not on a wall switch.
• Be sure the fuse is not blown on the AC power strip, if one is being used.
•
•
•
•
Check antenna connections. Are they properly secured to the TV's ANT 75Ω plug?
Check the TUNER MODE control for the correct tuner setting.
Try running the Auto Program feature to find all available channels.
Press the AV button on the remote to make sure the correct signal source is selected
(AV 1 [or CVI], AV 2, AV 3, or S-VIDEO).
• Check the VOLUME buttons.
• Check the MUTE button on the remote control.
• Check the SPEAKER onscreen control. If it is in the OFF position, sound at the set will
be eliminated.
• If you’re attempting to hook up auxiliary equipment, check the audio jack connections.
• (If applicable) Check the audio receiver for the correct operating mode.
• Check the batteries. If necessary, replace them with AA Heavy Duty (Zinc Chloride) or
Alkaline batteries.
• Clean the remote control and the remote control sensor window on the TV.
• Check the TV power cord. Unplug the TV, wait 10 seconds, then reinsert the plug into
the outlet and push the POWER button again.
• Be sure the fuse is not blown on the AC power strip, if one is being used.
• Check to be sure the TV outlet is not on a wall switch.
• Repeat channel selection.
• Add the desired channel numbers (using the CHANNEL EDIT control) into the TV’s
memory.
• Check to be sure the TUNER MODES are set to the CABLE option and run the Auto
Program feature to find all available channels.
¥ To avoid possible shock hazard, be sure the TV is unplugged from the electrical outlet
before cleaning.
¥ When you are cleaning the TV, take care not to scratch or damage the screen surface
(avoid wearing jewelry or using anything abrasive). Wipe the front screen with a clean
cloth dampened with water. Use even, easy, vertical strokes when cleaning.
¥ Gently wipe the cabinet surfaces with a clean cloth or sponge dampened in a solution of
cool, clear water. Use a clean, dry cloth to dry the wiped surfaces.
¥ Never use thinners, insecticide sprays, or other chemicals on or near the cabinet, as they
might cause permanent marring of the cabinet finish.

GLOSSARY OF TELEVISION TERMS
Alternate Channel ¥ The feature that allows you to toggle
between the last two channels viewed by pressing the A/CH button on the remote control.
Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) ¥ The broadcast standard that allows for stereo sound to be transmitted with the TV
picture.
Auto Programming ¥ The feature that, when activated, scans
for all available channels from regular antenna or cable signals
and stores only active broadcast stations in the TVÕs memory.
Onscreen Displays (OSD) ¥ The wording or messages generated
by the television (or VCR) to help you with specific feature controls (color adjustment or programming, for example).
Channel Edit ¥ The feature that allows you to add or delete

channels that are available to you when you press the Channel
(+) or (Ð) buttons on your remote control.
Picture-in-Picture ¥ The showing of two pictures on the TV
screen at the same time (one main screen picture and one small
picture, or PIP).
Programming ¥ The process of adding or deleting channel numbers into the televisionÕs memory circuits. Through programming, the TV ÒremembersÓ only the locally available or desired
channel numbers and skips over any unwanted channel numbers.
Closed Captioning ¥ The broadcast standard feature that allows
you to read the voice content of television programs on the TV
screen. Designed to help the hearing impaired, Closed
Captioning uses onscreen Òtext boxesÓ to show dialogue and
conversations while a TV program is in progress.
Remote Control Sensor Window ¥ The window or opening
found on the television control panel and through which infrared
remote control command signals are received.

the 75-ohm input terminals designed into the more recent TVs
and VCRs.
Incredible Stereo (or Surround) ¥ False acoustic management
of the audio signal that produces a dramatic expansion of the
wall of sound that surrounds the listener and heightens overall
viewing pleasure.
Menu ¥ An onscreen listing of feature controls that are available
for you to adjust.

90 Days Free Labor
One Year Free Replacement of Parts (Two Years Free Replacement on Color Picture Tube)
This product can be repaired in-home.
WHO IS COVERED?
MAKE SURE YOU KEEP...
You must have proof of purchase to receive warranty service. A sales
receipt or other document showing that you purchased the product is
considered proof of purchase.
Please keep your sales receipt or other document showing proof of
purchase. Attach it to this owner’s manual and keep both nearby.
Also keep the original box and packing material in case you need to
return your product.
WHAT IS COVERED?
BEFORE REQUESTING SERVICE...
Warranty coverage begins the day you buy your product. For 90 days
thereafter, all parts will be repaired or replaced free, and labor is free.
From 90 days to one year from the day of purchase, all parts will be
repaired or replaced free, but you pay for all labor charges. From one
to two years from the day of purchase, you pay for the replacement or
repair of all parts except the picture tube, and for all labor charges.
After two years from the day of purchase, you pay for the replacement
or repair of all parts, and for all labor charges.
All parts, including repaired and replaced parts, are covered only for
the original warranty period. When the warranty on the product
expires, the warranty on all replaced and repaired parts also expires.
Please check your owner’s manual before requesting service.
Adjustments of the controls discussed there may save you a service
call.

(In U.S.A., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands, all implied warranties,
including implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are limited in duration to the duration of this express
warranty. But, because some states do not allow limitations on how

• labor charges for installation or setup of the product, adjustment of
customer controls on the product, and installation or repair of

operate in any country other than the country for which it was
designed, manufactured, approved and/or authorized, or repair of
products damaged by these modifications.
• incidental or consequential damages resulting from the product.
(Some states do not allow the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. This
includes, but is not limited to, prerecorded material, whether copyrighted or not copyrighted.)
• a product used for commercial or institutional purposes.
